My Fundraising Goal: 15,000 USD
Total Raised To Date: 12,578 USD
Remaining: 2,422 USD

In February, I will be climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro on behalf of Shalva's children and families. This is not a joke. No one hacked my email. I was not abducted by aliens. Keep reading.

As my friend, you know that climbing Mt. Kili will allow me to do everything I love: fly long distances, schlep, sweat, carry heavy things, eat and sleep outside, go unbathed... "roughing it in nature" is practically my middle name.

Or, not at all. Climbing Mt Kilimanjaro will challenge me to do just about everything that I don’t like.

This mountain is the largest free-standing mountain in the world and one of the most challenging, so why on earth am I doing it?

The reason is Shalva.

Shalva provides transformative care to 2,000 individuals with disabilities and support to their family members, in the warmest and most loving environment. From infancy through adulthood, this incredible organization provides leading-edge therapies, inclusive educational frameworks, social and recreational activities, employment training, independent living, respite programs regardless of religion, ethnic background or financial capability!

Simply put, I am climbing the ultimate, once-in-a-lifetime mountain to benefit Shalva, so that their families are able to conquer their personal mountains on a daily basis.

I am doing my part to support this amazing organization with my climb, and I need your help.

I'll take care of the training, the achy feet, 8 days in a tent and the summit if you'll help me by donating to this worthy cause. All contributions are tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by law, and anything you can give would help me reach my goal.
Together we'll be supporting this truly special place and changing the lives of thousands of children.

If your company has a matching gift program, please let me know so I can connect you with Shalva.

Thank you in advance for your help and generosity.
